A DC-3 plane has been converted into a McDonald's restaurant in Taupo, New Zealand. For the last 24 years, the disused DC-3 plane has been parked beside the McDonald's restaurant. The grounded passenger plane has refurbished red and silver interior and seating for twenty. Eileen Byrne, the restaurant's 59-year-old owner, says: "The site was previously part of a car dealership, the Aeroplane Car Company, and the owner bought a disused DC-3 plane, which sat alongside the building." "And when McDonald's purchased the site in 1990, the aeroplane came with it."
